"Leather...a huge classic trend..this season...it adds another dimension."- Nina Garcia
New York, NY (PRWEB) September 20, 2010
Newport News has partnered with Nina Garcia*, Marie Claire Fashion Director and Project Runway Judge, who offers her take on how to incorporate leather looks into your fall wardrobe. Additionally, Garcia has selected this season’s standout leather pieces from The Leather Look Book.
These must-haves include a tailored leather girlfriend blazer, a jewel-toned leather motorcycle jacket, a high-waisted leather pencil skirt, a classic leather trench, and a modern suede mini skirt. Garcia’s picks are available in a wide range of colors, from classic neutrals like black and brown to statement hues such as teal, scarlet, pink, and violet.
Nina describes how to wear the top seven trends from the Newport News Leather Look Book:
“Leather was a huge classic trend that carried over from spring into fall this season. Not only has it become more day-appropriate, we are also seeing it in various options. One versatile alternative is Newport News' Leather Girlfriend Blazer. For a steal at $129, it adds another dimension to your jeans and tee, or evening minidress!”
Rich Jewel Tones
“Jewel tones are the easiest way to add color to your fall wardrobe. From ruby-red tops to emerald skirts, Newport News has a great range! A great investment piece is the motorcycle jacket, a quick way to add some downtown feel to your outfit.”
Chic and the City
“Chic city is all about looking polished and pulled together. Wear a structured jacket or dress to enhance your style. These pieces can go from day to evening by just adding accessories!”
“The nod to modern romance is a versatile trend for every day. You can add a scalloped open jacket over your blouse for the office, or wear a ruched side boot for an evening out. There are many choices to channel your inner romantic.”
“The rustic trend is a little tricky as it can look a little too costumey. Choose a strong statement piece like the grommet and fringe shawl, or the button corset belt to add a touch to your outfit"
"Metallics were huge on the runway this fall, and Newport News has some fantastic key pieces to enhance your outfit with that little bit of sparkle."
The New "It" Mini
"Everyone loves a mini skirt, but it's hard to find one that's winter-appropriate without looking old-fashioned. Newport News' suede mini is just the answer; it looks great with layers and tights, or with a slim-fitting top, and comes in a variety of colors."
